2600K vs I7-950 - Page 4

But what's going to happen when benchmarks have the chips running @ 3.4 vs 3.4, 4.0 vs. 4.0, etc. The 2600k will be only slightly faster, and I sure hope so considering it's on a 32nm process and all.

However, the plot thickens since you can OC higher on air with Sandy Bridge, and that's where the 2600k has the edge, but early reports state that people are having a hard time going past 5 GHZ, where as some people have reached 7GHZ with an i7-920 ON AIR ( just kidding )

You see, it's all relative, every processor has its pros and cons.



It's definitely funny, I agree.

It's even funnier how some people are posting everywhere about how great their new chip is about to be, that they can't even sleep at night, and have to tell everyone about it. ( I'm not talking about you in particular )

And the funniest is people who take it personal that their computers are not going to be the fastest kids on the block anymore, that's even more amusing.

Do people's lives really revolve around their epeen this much? If so, that's pretty sad, and you should really get out more.

I really wonder what will happen if Bulldozer turned out to be faster than Sandy Bridge, we'll never hear the end of it.
I know your not talking about me. I just woke up at 5am for the day

I'll upgrade to BD if it lives up to the Hype

And why would we whine when we can sell our chips and get new sandy bridge much easier than you? (since your procs will be ancient artifacts by the time SB comes out while we can sell our chips close to retail values then add lil cash to get ourselves high end SB.)
I said it in another thread i'm hoping Ivy Bridge isn't a repeat of Westmere

IMO a 1366 rig is alot better than a sandybridge rig

So what? I have a Core i7 920 and it's amazing.

However, I want better technology to prevail, so I am HOPING Sandybridge does better than my 1366 CPU. It's about time something gives it competition.

I want newer, and better technology. The only way that will happen is if the next generation of "stuff" is better than the previous generation. And if SB is so good it can linejump not only the LGA1156 platform but also some of the LGA1366 CPU's, I'm all for it.

What? You want Intel to hold back? Not me. Bring it on.

Have to remember SB is meant to replace the 760 and 875K.. Not the whole 1366 lineup. Most 1366 guys fail to realize that and are forced to defend themselves because SB takes mainstream up to 1366 performance.

I'm with you on this one. I however don't upgrade til usually the 2nd revision of a platform.

My 930 will hold me over well into the 2nd revision of Ivy Bridge I do like the looks of Sandy Bridge but I don't think the performance warrants an upgrade from Nehalem at this moment.

Wait, first we had AMD vs Intel, now we have Intel vs Intel?

Things have gotten worse than I feared.

Could be worse? Amd could actually have a product worth buying...

Anyone have an E5620 to test against a 2600K?
